A Gold Lace Skirt

“Out of the way! We are in the throes of an exceptional emergency! This is no occassion for sport- there is lace at stake!" (Ms. Pole)”
― Elizabeth Gaskell, Cranford
My tailors like to give me a heart attack. Probably because I'm a cheapskate. :) When I got this skirt back from one of them I did actually think in the lines of "There's Lace at stake!" after I pulled it on and the waist measurement was off.
You know, after seeing Hallie's lovely lace skirt and the ways she'd styled it I have been taken by it. So, I perused the local market for gorgeous lace fabrics and had the tailor make them into pencil skirts. This gold lace is just perfect with this maroon blouse I recently purchased.
